it's the off-season.
So, I took my dog to the Swift Run dog park only to be greeted by a lady from the city telling me that my dog had to be registered and I had to pay an annual $50 fee to use the park.
Granted, I'm new to dog ownership in a city, but holy smokes I was shocked. I mean, $50??? I know Chicago has several small dog parks all over the city that are free, so I was surprised to be turned away in Ann Arbor.
Any decent, free places around town that anyone uses?
Off season. Ignore if you want.
So, trying to figure out my first credit card. Been doing some research and have put together some options, but I wanted to get some feedback because I'm sure several people on the board are/were recently in a similar situation as me.
Recent finished grad school - 2011.
Never had a credit card (only check card).
Beginning year 2 of real-person status.
Have steady job, living comfortably.
Paying well over the minimums on student loans, currently, so I think my credit score would be better than a normal person that's never had a card.
Would pay full balance of card monthly.
The only reason I'm getting one is because it's one of those things you have to do. I'm of the opinion that if I don't have the money to buy something, I have to wait until I do. I'm just looking to build credit. Should I look at a credit card through a gas station? I've read I should ignore the sexy reward programs. Any anecdotes out there? Anyone really like their decision? Anyone really not like their decision?
